talking this morning about president obama's announcing new gun control measures that will happen today and there's a new movie that explores gun ownership from a unique perspective, the transformation of someone that buys a gun for protection. here's a little bit of a short film which is called "gun." >> got a problem, bro? >> yeah. >> i have a gun! >> spencer gillis is the writer and director of the short. it's premiering on the sundance film festival on gun appreciation day. nice to have you with us. the film opens with a wife and man in bed who hears someone in their house and it starts in the middle of what must be the most terrifying thing, there's an intruder, he opens the door, he sees the intruder and someone is going through their stuff. tell me what this story's about. >> really it's about the influence of power on the human mind, you know, you have a man who buys a gun and it leads to these dark fantasies that he starts to have and it just takes him down a path that could have very serious consequences. >> what was your point? i mean, are you a gun advocate? are you an anti-
in president obama's second inaugural. i know something she would like you to get involved in. she'll talk to us about that and she'll also talk to us about her mom's health and some other things when she joins us. >>> did you notice mark wahlberg had an interesting date? >> date? i don't know that you want to call it a date. >> i'm just trying to do the tease here. >> somebody on the red carpet. >> he is here now. we'll talk to him about that. also he has a new project we want to talk to him about, russell crowe movie. >>> hoda kotb is up early this morning. >> love hoda. love her. >> yeah. >>> we're standing in front of our weather wall. it's filling in. soon we hope to be able to reveal the title of dan brown's new thriller. if you keep it coming, we'll fill it up and give you that title. use the #danbrown today to fill the screen. by the way, how big is the release of a dan brown thriller? he is ranked, his books, as the most read books in the world, up there with books like the bible. >> the bible? wow! >> every tweet is a dot on that board. some people are starting to talk about flor
. there are a lot of americans out there who own guns who think president obama will want to take them away. >> well, that is true. as we talked about before. we're seeing an incredible swelling not only in the purchasing of guns but in the, in nra membership as well. i think that there is an expected, expectation on the part of the administration that the national rifle association's power is going to be quite, formidable and that they are not going to be able to pass everything in their legislative package, which as you mention is going to be outlined in specifics, soon. it will include, an assault weapons ban. it will include restrictions on magazine clips and high capacity ammunition. that is the kind of thing that will be fought hard by the nra. white house doesn't expect an assault weapons ban to pass but it will include it in its goals because they want to include everything in its goals. i think what they're expecting in the end to find consensus on is more like, i said, consensus and cooperation in the area of background checks and screening, before guns are purchased. maybe the closing of

president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way

the military and came out and became a cop. what i want everybody to know and want president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible americans, human beings with our case, this country with be greater. >> i want to apologize we didn't get to hear from everybody tonight. i promise we will bring you back. it's sad a lot of media outlets won't give bothhhhh >> alisyn: good morning, everyone. it's sa

, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
